I have a question but I have no idea what SE site (if any) it's applicable for.
I was watching F1 this weekend, and all the cars have sensors which send real time data about the car to the pit lane, and I was wondering how exactly it sends back the data. I'm thinking more on a general scale, what technologies could be used to send real time data between hardware rather than which specific one the F1 teams use.
Being a web developer I know of a few things which it could use but none of them are right I don't think (Ajax, Web Sockets and Server Sent Events).
Would this question fit here? Or more broadly does it fit in the SE model for questions, as I'm not sure if it could have an absolute answer.
